I love these pancakes. I only make half of the recipe for myself and I don't even add the salt.

LOVE THESE! Everyone in the family does. I added a little vanilla and 1/2T Splenda. Sometimes a little blueberries. What about Pineapple cottage cheese? I use low fat sour cream & low fat cottage cheese. Going to make some right now.

I truly do NOT understand the dieticians for this website and how they can post recipies that are so contrary to the advise we patients receive about proper nutrition on CKD diets. 1. All of the literature I have says that when it comes to acceptable dairy, cottage cheese is not on the list because the phosphorus levels are too high. And why is there salt in this recipe? I've noticed that many recipies on DaVita's web site have salt. And what is the FIRST thing patients are told when they are diagnosed with a kidney issue - go low sodium. Can someone please explain why DaVita's dieticians are allowed to be irresponsible like this? Moderator note: Thanks for your questions. You can follow a list of foods to avoid but that may be challenging when you start planning meals. It's more important to be sure your recipes end up low enough in sodium, potassium and phosphorus so you can stay within your daily targets for these minerals. Low sodium does not neccessarily mean no sodium. One serving of pancakes from this recipe contains only 150 mg sodium, about the amount you get from one piece of bread. You will notice the recipes that contain salt or salty ingredients use sparing amounts to add flavor but still keep sodium in a realistic range for a CKD or dialysis diet. The 1/2 cup of cottage cheese contributes 42 mg phosphorus to each serving and at 134 mg phosphorus per serving can easily be included in planning a low phosphorus breakfast. Pancakes from a mix contain approximately 200 mg phosphorus for a similar serving.
